UPDATED WITH PODCAST: Residential LED street light changes begin

DTE Street Light Conversion Areas Feb 2017.png

In an effort to maintain and improve City of Taylor’s infrastructure, DTE has been authorized to replace existing aging mercury vapor street lights with LED light fixtures. The conversion work will be performed by Corby Energy Services (CES), under the authority of DTE.  
Listen to related podcast including host Dr. Paul Reeves, Karl Ziomek, Mayor Rick Sollars and DPS Deputy Director Glenn Nogiec

Work started on Monday, February 13, and will continue through to the first week in April.  CES crews will be in the area with lift trucks and supply vehicles, changing the lights Mondays through Fridays, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Work will be performed continuously except during wet conditions, such as snow or rain storms, or because of power outages resulting from storms.

The light fixture conversion work is expected to proceed according to the following sequence and estimated time frames, as determined by DTE and CES to be the most efficient sequence and schedule.  

Please see the attached map for a more detailed location of street light replacement locations:

  • Area 1:  Bounded by Ecorse Road, Pelham Road, Goddard Road and Telegraph Road: Duration:  Approximately four weeks
  • Area 2:  Bounded by Ecorse Road, Telegraph Road, Goddard Road and Inkster Road: Duration:  Approximately two weeks
  • Area 3:  Bounded by Goddard Road, Telegraph Road, Pennsylvania Road and Inkster Road: Duration:  Approximately one week
  • Area 4:  Bounded by Goddard Road, Allen Road, Pennsylvania Road and Telegraph Road: Duration:  Approximately one week

When you see the CES vehicles in your area, please avoid parking under street lights to provide a safer and more productive working environment.  Trash pick up will not be affected by this work.  

The City of Taylor apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause. The City, DTE and CES will try to limit the inconvenience as best as possible.  Your cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated.  

If you have any questions or concerns, contact Glenn Nogiec, (734) 374-1425, or by email at gnogiec@ci.taylor.mi.us.

NOTE: Streetlights on the north end of the city, above I-94,  have been converted to LED except for the area west of Beech Daly, which are high pressure sodium. High pressure sodium lights are not being replaced as part of this phase of the project.
